Gangland: Urban Decay - PvP System-lite (Interest Check)
I'm looking at possibly starting up a group game that revolves around 3 opposing factions in a setting of modern urban blight. All factions and locations will be completely fictional. Members will be multi-ethnic and non-gender specific. LGBT friendly.
I'm looking for flexible go with the flow sort of role players that won't take any PvP personally as this whole RP will revolve around constant threat of violence between the 3 factions.
My games tend to be fast posting with the expectation of several posts a week from players.The system and setting is still under development. Your input is requested and appreciated. (Click here for system conversation).
he system will be simple, easy, and not require complex calculations or any sort of mess like that. The E dicebot will be used to resolve PvP combat and players are expected to roll with the punches and lose their fights when needed with style. Factions
- Police - Line County Police(LCP or "Black & Whites" to the locals) are the local law enforcement agency. They are understaffed, underfunded, have no room in their county lock-up and do their best to only involve themselves when innocent civilians get hurt/robbed. Otherwise they only come out in force for serious criminal offenses such as catching large quantities of narcotics or arresting murder suspects. They are fairly well respected by locals and the two major gangs but if they cross the gangs paths at the wrong time it can get messy. Messy can also lead to arrests/shootouts.
- Rolling Nines - R9s, Color to represent are Blues. They get their name from the 9th Street Freeway that roars overhead of their district. A multi-ethnic area like the rest of Line County but they live down in a ravine. Predominantly with old 3-4 floor apartment buildings and small shop faces.
- Sin City Ballers - SIN, Colors to represent are Reds. They get their name from the Ryersin Projects, a massive 20 story rectangle housing complex with a courtyard in the middle, the building sits on top of a hill that overlooks Line County, down into the ravine and out onto the beach. It's surrounded by tiny little single family one floor houses.
- Is part of a massive city similar to Los Angeles but in a state of Urban Decay more along the lines of Detroit. It's industry is all dried up and the state & federal governments are not giving any form of financial support. It means that unemployment is closer to about 50% in the area and public infrastructure is rapidly falling apart. Life is hard on the streets of Line County a once thriving tourist destination that had quaint little shops and beautiful beach front. Now the hotels are mostly abandoned. Only tourists come from up state or inland but even those numbers are dwindling fast.
Once it was a multi-ethnic hub full of life but that was a couple generations ago. Tourist jobs never did pay well but people were happy. Now the people are poor and desperate. The government largely ignores life here. It's up to you to make your own way and protect what's yours from anyone that tries to take it.
We'll be recruiting for all 3 factions.
Each one will have it's own thread.
Then there will be one thread for a neutral area that runs along the beach.
The neutral beach area has the largest presence of police and is a common destination for locals and tourists alike. It's a lot like the Venice Beach boardwalk area - street buskers, small shops, little parks, and big beach with a pier.Post your interest, thoughts, conversation, ideas, questions... etc...Recruiting about 12+ people: 4+ for each faction.
That should be enough to let each thread stand as an independent group RP with crossover to other threads.Confirmed Players
More needed and some neutrals
